IFPUG Releases Software Non-functional Assessment Process (SNAP) Assessment Practices Manual 2.0 for Improved Software Development


PRINCETON JUNCTION, NJ, January 28, 2013 - The International Function Point Users Group (IFPUG) is pleased to announce the release of the Software Non-functional Assessment Process (SNAP) Assessment Practices Manual 2.0 under a Creative Commons 3.0 Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike License. IFPUG is the first international functional sizing standards organization to release a new standard under the Creative Commons License.

The SNAP provides organizations and projects a means to develop a quantifiable measure for the non-functional requirements (NFR). By sizing non-functional requirements software development can planned, evaluated and managed better; saving organizations time and money. The SNAP standard provides organizations using IFPUG measures with a unique competitive advantage to those using other software sizing methods which do not account for non-functional software size.

Sizing this component of project work will allow organizations to build historical data repositories that can be referenced to assist in decision making for the technical and/or quality aspects of application Assessment Practices.

According to Joseph Schofield, President of IFPUG, "SNAP provides the software development and enhancement market with a potentially game changing mechanism to radically improve estimation and planning. The new version we are releasing under a Creative Commons License transitions the method from theoretical to eminently practical and shows our commitment to enhancing practices in the software industry."
